Luv Dot Gov, the brainchild of Matthew Pop (vocals/guitar)
By fall 2016, the fledgling Luv Dot Gov had recruited Sean Egan on bass, and had a few local gigs under their belts. However, stressed and depressed in a post-election US, Pop ran away to Scotland for a brief respite in November. It was here he linked up with Graeme Young, a producer and operator of Chamber Studio in Edinburgh. A plan was soon hatched to record Luv Dot Gov's debut album abroad, taking advantage of Young's top notch equipment, expertise and extensive network of first-class musicians. After another smattering of stateside and UK shows, Matt and Steve decamped to Scotland for the spring of 2017 to lay down tracks for the record. Here, isolated from the stressors of the States, the songs blossomed into intricate but accessible pop-rock anthems, equally suited for blasting out a car stereo or headphones-on introspection.
Upcoming Show Details:
Friday, January 11th, 9:00PM @ Pianos NYC (158 LUDLOW STREET, NYC)
Tuesday, January 29th, 7:00PM @ Arlene's Grocery (95 STANTON STREET, NYC)
Friday, February 1st, (TIME TBA) @ Connie's Ric Rac (1132 S 9TH ST, PHILADELPHIA, PA)
Friday, February 22nd, 8:00PM @ The Way Station (Acoustic) (683 WASHINGTON AVE, BROOKLYN, NYC)
Thursday, March 7th, (TIME TBA) @ Gold Sounds Bar (44 WILSON AVE, BROOKLYN, NYC)
Upon Matt and Steve's return to New York that summer, the band rounded out its roster by bringing in Matt Middleton (lead guitar) and Patrick Fischer (keyboard/synth)
Meanwhile, Young continued refining tracks across the pond, and the resulting album; the hooky and bittersweet "At Least We've Got This Madness," was released in Spring 2018. In honour of its release, the band played nearly a dozen shows during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, along with many UK and US tour dates throughout the Summer. With outlets like ANR Factory touting its "raw emotional honesty" along with "sharp hooks and punchy melodies" there's surely only more continued praise to come.
Now, following their Debut LP's release and with tons more on the horizon in regards to live dates, video releases, and new music…..Luv Dot Gov is ready to kick off a great 2019!
